So blessed...

I am so so blessed.  I am so happy, to think that Artem is soon to be a well adjusted little boy living in my community.  Never  did I think the Lord would surround me with so many of these little ones.  It is still so unbelievable to me.  Not only Artem but another little guy's family from rr is starting the process also.  It is just so amazing to me.  I am so thrilled to think that there are so many like minded people in our community.

Now many of you are probably wondering why I am doing an auction for Artem's family.  Yes, they have a huge grant, but I remember the first moments of committing to Nellie.  It is an absolute faith journey, and those first few months can be very difficult.  Handing over money for commitment, homestudies, agencies, certified copied of marriage licences. The list goes on and on. These are all upfront cost.  These all have to be paid immediately, and if one doesn't have any savings then you need to fundraise.  Atrem is set for when his family is ready to go get him it's the next few months that will be difficult for them..  I want them to know that they are loved, and supported.  I want them to know that in the difficult moments that it is so worth it, I want them to know that in the midst of the overwhelming paperwork, that there are people out there cheering them on.  My heart is filled with great joy to see that Artem is coming here.  When, I found out that they needed help, I knew this was something that I could do for them..  Please show your support for this family just donate a few dollars this Christmas season, for one more orphans journey home.

When we decided to commit to Nellie, yes it was about adopting just one.  Adopting one was all I could do.  But it came with the hope that others hearts would break for orphans.  That others would say yes Lord, we can do this.  Well, I can tell you right now that the Lord is answering my prayers.  He is so Good.
